Request a replacement award certificate
Your Award Certificate is a legal document. Only one can exist at any one time. A replacement document can only be ordered if the original has been lost or damaged.
If you graduated after 1992, we can supply a replacement award certificate. To order one, please visit the SHU Store. Replacement Certificates will be dispatched in an Award Pack and are accompanied by an Academic Transcript (not including collaborative partner courses completed before 2014) and a generic Diploma Supplement.
Before ordering, please note the following:
- If you have never received your original award certificate and it's been less than a year since you finished your course, please check the Graduation and Beyond page on My Student Record for further details rather than order a replacement
- There is a £35 administration fee
- We aim to process the replacement within 10 working days. Please note there is no fast-track service
- The order must be placed by the student who gained the award
- We can't provide digital copies of award certificates
- Replacements can only be ordered where an official award was definitely gained. Please note that the Certificates Team do not issue replacement certificates for confirmation of module completion, level 3 study, or achievements of less than 60 credits. If in doubt, please check before placing an order by contacting the Certificates Team on +44 (0)114 225 4441 or email@example.com
